NIJ Highlights Evidence-Based Policing in New Feature

February 17, 2021 — The National Institute of Justice recently introduced a new feature on its website, "Term of the Month", which promotes research-based definitions of criminal justice terminology. In the first edition of this feature, the NIJ focuses on Evidence-Based Policing.

The February edition provides links to several NIJ resources, including an NIJ publication, Evidence-Based Policing in 45 Small Bytes (May 2020); an August 2020 NIJ publication, Perspectives on Research and Evidence-Based Policing; and a video from an NIJ seminar held July 2018 on the topic of evidence-based policing.

You can learn more about the first Term of the Month, and look for future editions here.
